Asked by Alj, 94403 Sun Jun 26, 2011

I am re-posting this (now in the correct county) in effort to find somebody who works in the areas I am looking at. I am looking for a realtor who can assist me with a RENTAL property in the Silicon Valley. I am looking as far north as Mountain view down to San Jose and the cities in between. Any referrals would also be great. Need help ASAP as I have just relocated to the Bay Area due to employment and am hoping to find something by August. Thanks for any help anybody can give :)

There are property managers who advertise regularly on Craigslist, the Mercury, etc. If you can't find what you want then you might consider submitting a letter or email to some of the property management companies you find in the advertisements. Property managers are generally looking for someone who has the ability to pay the rent, has good credit, doesn't have outstanding judgments or poor references from previous landlords, etc. They would normally prefer non-smokers and tenants without pets also. Tell them exactly what you are looking for, the area, timeframe to move in, etc. Some may be able to tell you about units coming on the market for rent in the next month or two.

It is unlikely that a real estate agent will specialize in finding rentals in Silicon Valley. Some may because they are an employee of a company and are responsible for incoming employees but that would be about it.

I know craigslist like the back of my hand and am on there daily ;) I know in the past realtors would have listings that sometimes were not always available to the public. Guess times have changed...thanks

Personally, I do not know any Realtors who handle rentals. I hope one here on Trulia will respond to help you, however, the MLS has very few rentals. Trulia has a new and abundant rental section that you can browse and Craigslist is also a good resource for rentals as well.
